Tent City: Upcoming Meeting and Current Needs

Thanks to all who have been actively supporting the residents at Tent City through e-mails, prayers, and donations. There is another opportunity to show support Thursday, June 3rd at Living Word Community Church on Hickory Hollow Pkwy at 6:30pm. We encourage you to attend as peaceful and supportive witnesses to the gospel and to the human rights and civil rights of our marginalized brothers and sisters. A group of us will be meeting in the parking lot of Woodbine Presbyterian Church on Nolensville Rd. at 5:45pm to pray and carpool to the meeting. We’re unsure as to how the meeting will unfold, but we’re prepared for there to be some hateful words spoken. We hope to see you at Woodbine or later at “Living Word”. If you are unable to attend, please pray with us as we continue on the journey.

Also, below is the list of items we still need:

  • Pots and Pans
  • Propane
  • Long candle sticks
  • Flashlights and Batteries
  • All Day Bus Passes
  • Camping Chairs
  • Utensils, Plates and Cups
  • Ice (one time and daily deliveries)
  • Host a Meal (coordinate through ingrid.mcintyre@gmail.com)
  • Hair Cuts, Shaves & Foot Care/Pedicures (coordinate through ingrid.mcintyre@gmail.com)
  • ***Make 2 Shower Facilities (that don’t require running water)***
  • Laundry

We are asking that most donations be coordinated through Doug Sanders (doug@ottercreek.org) and Amos House because we’ve heard rumors that a couple of people at the camp have been hoarding donations and possibly selling a couple of things. It’s not the worst thing in the world, but we know who has what and where there are needs. Small things like candles, ice, food, and toiletries are fine to be taken out there and left in the donations tent. But we are storing the bigger donations and giving them out daily as there is need… just something to consider.
